“This includes the assault on a police officer for which a woman was arrested.
“Make sure you know where your kids are and call them home.”
The order follows a few incidents that took place on Friday and Saturday.
Blackpool city center police received reports on Saturday that a man had been seen wielding a knife.
Officers attempted to arrest the man and, after a short chase, arrested and arrested him.
A spokesperson added: “This knife was found in his belt and he also had five pressure bags which are believed to be cocaine.
“A 19-year-old man was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and possession with intent to supply Class A.
“Another dangerous weapon has been taken from our streets and one from the cells.”
The previous evening, police officers from the task force were in Grange Park in Blackpool in response to community concerns over anti-social and anti-social behavior.
As a result, a vehicle was seized and the driver apprehended for traffic violations.
The spokesperson continued, “A group of men were arrested and searched and as a result the brass knuckles pictured below were located and seized.

“Brass knuckles have no place in society and there is no excuse for wearing one in public as they can cause serious injury when used.”
